The UK commends the work of UNIFIL in maintaining calm and stability in southern Lebanon over the last 11 years. This is vital for peace, stability, and the security of Lebanon and Israel. We welcome the steps UNIFIL has taken to fulfil UN Security Council Resolution 2373 by increasing the number and quality of land and air patrols in closer cooperation with the Lebanese Armed Forces.
